Also, Newskin Savbjj Danny Lleonart and Anthony Del Guercio were given their Professor stripes.  Professor stripes are a big ranking at our Academy that not everyone receives. To earn Professor stripes here, one must have dedicated their life/time to teaching the art that has helped them change their life to help others change theirs. Not all blackbelts earn Professor stripes. Congrats to these brothers of mine, my Academy wouldn’t be what it is without these guys. Proud of everything they have accomplished and honored to be their instructor. Guys, I appreciate you. oss.
